run as Admin

Post by kpendergrass » Tue Nov 19, 2019 1:45 pm

does full Ranorex testing depend upon running Ranorex as Admin? is there a file(s) that requires you to run as Admin? our security guys don't like to give out Admin privs but i need to fully run debugger and see full testing output?

Generally speaking, administrator privileges should be required only in case you want to debug your tests. I believe that some (but not all) WPF-based elements may require admin mode too, but debugger definitely requires admin mode. So if you want to debug your tests, you must be granted with admin rights.
